Market Group’s inaugural Tri-State Institutional Real Estate Investor Forum. I launched the US Institutional Real Estate Division for Markets Group (an Inc 500 company) in 2015. The first event was in New York, followed by Austin and Chicago, before expanding into Canada and Europe in 2016. The Institutional Real Estate Group accounted for 20% of the company’s revenue for 2016 and 2017. Click here to download the 2015 Tri-State Institutional Real Estate Investor Forum brochure.
IMN’s Private Equity Fund Forum on Spanish Real Estate 2014, Madrid. IMN partnered with Planner Exhibitions, producers of the large SIMA Trade Show, to create an event based on a recent uptick in investment activity on the part of international investors. My job was to write the agenda and recruit international private equity firms, while our partners brought on board local investors and other real estate players. Over 200 people attended this launch event, making it a great success. Click here to download the 2014 Private Equity Fund Forum on Spanish Real Estate brochure.
Also with IMN:
Conference Board 2013 Summit on Sustainability, New York City. The Conference Board is a research based membership organization designed for executives from large companies to network and share best practices. I leveraged Existing membership structures within the organization as well as targeted outreach to revitalize the event, which had been losing steam in previous years. Using intelligence garnered from working groups and councils within the Conference Board, I developed a theme that was relevant to the entire industry – Integrating Sustainability into Your Company’s Return-on-Investment Strategy. I used the Conference Board’s resources to network to a more diverse and higher level speaker faculty than the event had had in the past. For this event, I directly secured five high level sponsors as the sole Sponsorship Sales Manager. Click here to download the Sustainability Summit brochure!
Lean Sigma and Kaizen for Pharmaceutical Research and Development Summit 2012, Philadelphia. I took over this event in its fifth year after it had experienced a steady decline in attendance. The result was that I grew it by a factor of 400% over the previous year, making it the lead conference in the five event CROWN Summit. I simultaneously produced the strongly sponsored Patient Engagement Summit which ran at the same event.

Private Equity World Brazil 2009, Sao Paulo. After taking the helm of Terrapinn’s Private Equity World Latin America Summit in 2008 and growing the audience and speaker staff in its second year, I extended the brand to Brazil with a successful and profitable launch event in Sao Paulo. This event served as the prototype for Market Group’s flagship event Brazil Private Equity Forum which launched that company.

Foundations and Endowments Summit 2007, San Francisco. IMN’s Foundations and Endowments Event had been discontinued in recent years.
